I felt very angry that I would never be able to relax and enjoy being pregnant again after my oldest was born at 33 weeks to severe pe. I think that is a normal way to feel. I was able to be fairly active during my last pregnancy, and keeping busy helped me manage the constant anxiety. Have you talked to your doctor about what the limitations are that he/she will impose during your pregnancy, I think you should. My doc really did not want me traveling after 20 weeks he did not want me going more than an hour away. It was inconvenient, because my family and dh's family both live more than 3 hours away, but you know what I was happy to do it. Take care of yourself, and of course, it is totally fine for you to be focused on getting as far as you can in your pregnancy. Blowing stuff off for 9 months won't hurt you or your friends/family, the reward of healthy mama and baby will far outweigh any missed events :).
